New Space and County’s Namesake Showcased

On Tuesday October 31st, the Elmore County Commission unveiled a few treats for its citizens. During the first portion of the ceremony, the County Commission along with several other state and county elected officials performed a ribbon cutting to officially open the additional 11,450 square foot of space added to the south face of the historic Elmore County Courthouse.

Once Chairman Troy Stubbs completed the ribbon cutting portion of the ceremony, his attention turned to the space’s Hill Street entrance where a portrait of the county’s namesake, John Archer Elmore, was unveiled. Many family members of John Archer Elmore were on hand to participate in the event.

The courthouse addition was part of the county’s “Blueprint 2020” Plan, and was designed by Payne Design Group. Construction One was the prime contractor on the project.
